Since the nuclear power plant at Fukushima exploded in Japan, a lot of creatures have been polluted around the area. Consequently, it is expected that the number of mutants will be increased in the future. It is commonly perceived as a negative ecological change however, it might just be a process of evolution. In fact, there is a theory revealed by scientists and archaeologists that a huge amount of radioactive substances which affected to a genome was naturally occurring when creatures had an evolution, and it happened several times while unicellular organism become human. It means we are all sons of a mutant, yet, there is a possibility of that the human become a previous creature in the future.

 

This work illustrates an assumption of a life of a post-human who lives in a near future. The one of a direction of evolution is that their functions are multiplied physically, so they will have more arms, legs and heads and be able to do and recognize some different things at the same time if they will have more than a brain on the individual body.
